The USA becomes the first country where more than 2,000 people die a day due to the coronavirus outbreak
In the U.S. epidemic of Kovid-19, the number of cases exceeded half a million in the past 24 hours, while the number of those who died increased by 2 thousand 91 to 18 777. Thus, the USA became the first country where more than 2 thousand people die a day due to coronavirus.
The U.S., where the number of COVID-19 cases exceeded 500,000, may soon cross Italy and become the country where the virus caused the most casualties.
However, experts from the White House COVID-19 Task Force say there are signs that the pandemic’s rate of spread across the country has begun to decline.
“While this is promising, the outbreak has not yet reached the highest level,” said Dr. Deborah Birx, a specialist.
US President Donald Trump said he expects the number of people to die from the coronavirus to remain below 100,000, contrary to initial estimates.
“We see that our aggressive strategy has clear signs that many people have saved their lives,” Trump said.
NEAR TO 19 THOUSAND DEAD
According to the data of American Johns Hopkin University, 18,777 people have died in the USA as a result of coronavirus so far.
In Italy, which is the only country where more people die than the USA, this number is 18 thousand 849.
According to experts’ estimates, the number of deaths in the US will reach its peak on Friday, and then it will begin to decrease gradually.
This number is expected to drop to the level of 970 people per day by 1 May.
The Trump administration previously announced that economic activities could resume on this date.
